Kevin McGreskin - UEFA A Licence / Coach Educator ( Irish FA)
"Excellent book! Superb in the detail for coaching a team to build up play from the goalkeeper, through the thirds and into finishing situations..
Not many people manage to offer a book that is such a useful resource for coaches working across all levels of the game. Highly recommended!"
Eddie Munnelly - Lead Youth Dev. Coach - Queens Park Rangers FC
A very well put together book for any level of coach to understand.
I would recommend to coaches looking to gain an introduction and insight into a possession-based progressive football
Hamza Serrar - U-18's Academy Coach: Charlton Athletic
This book will be of interest for all coaches from Level 1 right up to Pro-Licence.
All the practices are clearly linked in with real game scenarios..
I've already used a number of the practices and will continue to do so with my players. Recommended !
